Challenge #14 - Be a Sport

Are you tired of basketball? I hope not as the challenge this week is "Be a Sport" Don't limit your creations to basketball now as there are other sports. Soon baseball will take front stage on my TV. What sport will you take part in or watch...maybe it is racing. I can't wait to see what you make.

My card is on the whymsical side again.  I believe this golfer has hit his ball into the rough again.  My image is from Dude Time Doodles, my sponsor for this challenge.  I used it on a zig-zag accordian card which is an expanding easel card.    This card can be found on the "Fancy Folds and Motion Paper Crafts" CD by Technique Junkies.

I tried to made the foreground like the rough that the golf hit his ball into.  Of course, I needed a golf ball.  That was easy to do.  I just punched a circle, ran it through an embossing folder and then highlighted it by the paper direct method.  What rough doesn have high grass.  That was done with a borrowed punch.  Coloring was done with Copic markers.  The greeting was from Dude Time Doodles also.  I wonder how many men are on the golf course today and how many have this problem?.  I hope this card puts a smile on your face today. 
Petra - Bicycle Artistry
My first DT piece for an exciting challenge: Be a Sport. After finding the amazing and intriguing image from Vintage Bicycle the sport of cycling had to be the choice. The card base is a white square card which is layered with Pink Petticoat Kraftcard and patternd paper from 3Bugs in a Rug. Before adding the image I stamped 'creative' words from Stampers Anonymous onto the paper. The sentiment is printed, the wonderful vintage bicycle image is from Hero Arts whereby I couldn't resist to 'improve' the bicycle hubs with snap fasteners. Enjoy the ride and the excitement of the artistic adventure! Petra.
My sport for this challenge is POWER LIFTING! This is one strong guy. The stamp is from Graphic Rubber Stamps of No. Hollywood. I had fun using a Technique Junkies technique called "Warhol #1"
